Children's Dentistry


Children's Dentistry

Our dental office regularly cares for the dental needs of children as young as two years old. However, if you notice that your child has a problem with his or her teeth or gums prior to this age, please call to reserve an appointment. You may also want to bring your child to your dental checkup when he or she is about two so that your child can become familiar with the sights, sounds, and friendly helpers in our dental office.  Your child's independent checkup at age two will involve a comprehensive oral evaluation and periodontal exam. The dentist will check for proper development, as well as tooth decay and other areas of concern.

As your child grows, he or she will need regular checkups and hygiene visits to ensure optimal oral health. Our team will also teach oral homecare techniques so that your child can learn how to effectively brush and floss, with your help at first, then on his or her own. The dentist may recommend dental sealants or fluoride supplements. Sealants are thin, clear coatings that protect hard-to-clean back teeth from the sugars that cause tooth decay. Fluoride attracts other minerals to strengthen tooth enamel and ward off cavities. Because most bottled water does not contain fluoride, your child may be deficient in this essential mineral. Sealants and fluoride supplements are quick and easy protective measures that can save your little one from cavities.

Let us help your children learn the importance of optimal oral health from a young age. Call to reserve an appointment today!  In some cases, we refer children to pedodontists, who are specialists in children's dentistry. We will help you make the best choices for your child's unique and precious personality.
